Our Parish Priest
Fr Stan Gibziński is a priest of the diocese of Portsmouth. He was ordained to the archdiocese of Warsaw in 1996. After ten rewarding years of priesthood in Poland, on 1st September 2006 he entered a period of ministry in England and Wales which has continued until now. On 8th September 2015 Fr Stan became our Parish Priest and the Catholic Chaplain at Reading University.
“The day of my ordination, 25th May 1996, was the most significant moment of my life” says Fr Stan. “My calling is best expressed by the Farewell Discourse given by the Lord to His friends, particularly words of Christ to the Father: Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them (John 17:24-26). This prayer became a reality in my soul together with Philippians 7:1 I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace. I chose both these passages for my ordination texts, and they continue to be in my soul”.
